Collecting was a popular pastime for well-to-do Ming and Qing dynasty gentleman, and a shelf like this one would have been an ideal place to display jades, curios, porcelain, and collectibles. This shelf was made out of elmwood over 150 years ago in China’s Shanxi province. The two doors and two drawers are carved with detailed scholars' objects and vases filled with auspicious flowers.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
